About

This is a large scale painting on panel by Nancy Lorenz. Lorenz is interested in materials, and uses a wide range of them in her artistic practice. In this piece, she has built up dimensionality through dozens of layers of carefully applied gesso, which she then covers with yellow gold leaf. Lorenz made her own blue pigment for this piece, which she applied over shards of glass and charcoal. The piece is highly textural, and very dramatic. The smooth and reflective surface of the gold contrasts with the hyper-pigmented blue, which is significantly rougher to the touch. This work is a continuation of her "Elements" series, in which she created a work of art to represent each element on the Periodic Table. Though considerably larger in scale, this work calls to mind elements of cobalt and gold. Full materials list: Yellow gold, charcoal, pigment, gilt glass on wood panel Nancy Lorenz earned a BFA in Painting and Printmaking at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and an MFA in painting from the Tyler School of Art, studying in Philadelphia, Rome and Japan. She is a 1998 recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim award. In 2014 and 2015 her work has been featured in exhibitions at the McNay Art Museum in Houston, the Akron Museum and the Nassau County Museum of Art. She has an upcoming exhibition at the San Diego Museum of Art in 2018. She has ongoing collaborations with many of the world's leading architects and designers including William T. Georgis, David Mann, Peter Marino, Michael Smith and William Sofield. Public commissions include Chanel stores worldwide, the Gucci Towers in Tokyo and Hong Kong, the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the Time/Warner center in New York City. She has recently completed limited edition projects with Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta and with jewelry designer Temple St. Clair for Paris Fashion Week.
